4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return for Captain Kronos!, 14 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Kronos (Hammer) (Paperback)
To start with I really enjoyed this novel...
I'm a big fan of the classic Hammer movie and discovered Guy Adams novel quite by accident a week or so ago. At first I thought that it was a new adventure based around the Captain Kronos character, but realised that this was in fact a new novelisation of the 1974 film...
To begin with the novel fleshes out characters, situations and details. We get to know more about Grost, Marcus and Carla... and the strange Durward family... Yet Adams doesn't say much more about Kronos himself, except what we already know and how he received his terrible stomach wound during the wars... Although Kronos is remote, I feel that this adds to his character greatly and helps to enhance his chosen life as a vampire hunter.
The novel is written from a number of different perspectives, with different characters telling the story in their own words. This style didn't put me off at all as I found it quite refreshing and interesting...
Some sections perhaps seemed a little rushed, but Adams builds up the suspense until Kronos encounters his prey in a deadly duel to the death...
Captain Kronos has become a cult movie over the years and I believe that Guy Adams novelisation represents a refreshing new take on the story and its characters...
Don't be put off if your a Kronos fan... go and buy this novel... I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did!
Vampires beware!
